East Carolina Teachers' Training School. 



(general Snformatton 

&ct of tfje General gtesemblp 

The East Carolina Teachers' Training School was estab- 
lished by Act of the General Assembly, ratified the 8th day of 
March, 1907. 

"Section 11. That there shall be established and maintained 
at some suitable point in Eastern North Carolina a teachers' 
training school, for the training of young white men and 
women, under the corporate name of the East Carolina Teach- 
er-' Training School. 

"Sec. 12. That said school shall be located by the State 
Board of Education at such a point in Eastern North Carolina 
as they may deem proper, and shall be located in or near that 
town offering the largest financial aid, having due regard to 
desirability and suitability for the location of said school. 

"Sec. 13. That the object in establishing and maintaining 
said school shall be to give to young white men and women 
such education and training as shall fit and qualify them for 
teaching in the public schools of North Carolina. And the 
Board of Trustees hereinafter provided for, in prescribing the 
course of study of said school, shall lay special emphasis on 
those subjects taught in the public schools of the State and on 
the art and science of teaching. 

"Sec. 14. That tuition in said school shall be free to those 
who signify their intention to teach, for such time and upon 
such conditions as may be prescribed by the board of trustees ; 
and the board of trustees, upon the recommendation of tho 
faculty, shall give those students in said school who have com- 
pleted the required course a certificate of proficiency in the 

work done." 

llocatton 

The school is located in the town of Greenville, North Caro- 
lina on a tract of forty-seven and one-half acres of land. The 



10 East Carolina Teacher*' Training School. 

site is well-nigh ideal. Part of the land is covered with a 
growth of native trees and lends itself beautifully to the estab- 
lishment of a school park. 

^tstorp 

July 2, 1908 ground was first broken. The following build- 
ings have been erected : Boys' Dormitory, Girls' Dormitory, Ad- 
ministration Building, Kitchen and Dining Hall, Laundry and 
Power Plant, and Infirmary. October 5, 1909, the school 
opened its doors for students. During this year four hundred 
and sixty-one students have been enrolled. 

As is seen in the act of the General Assembly, Section 13, the 
object of the State in establishing and maintaining the school 
is "to give to young white men and women such education ami 
training as shall fit and qualify them for teaching in the pub- 
lic schools of North Carolina." 

This is a professional school. Its aim is to teach its stu- 
dents not only subject matter, but also the processes by which 
the learning-mind acquires knowledge. Its purpose is to give 
the students: 

1. Such knowledge of the studies taught in the public 
schools as a teacher must have in order to teach them properly. 

2. A knowledge of other studies that are so related to the 
branches taught in the public schools as will give a proper 
understanding of the public school branches. 

3. A knowledge of the mental and physical powers of the 
child and their methods of development. 

4. A knowledge of the principles of education and methods 
of teaching, and their application in the actual work of the 
school room. 

5. A knowledge of the methods of organizing and managing 
schools. 

6. A knowledge of the school laAv of the State. 

In brief, this institution aims to prepare teachers both 
theoretically and practically for teaching the public schools of 
North Carolina.

Discipline 

In conducting a school for young men and women who are 
about to assume the responsibilities of so serious and dignified 
a profession as teaching, there should be no occasion for arbi- 
trary and iron-clad rules. Each student should attend 
promptly and faithfully to every duty and have due consid- 
eration and regard for the rights and privileges of others. 

Xo rules are made by the school authorities except those 
necessary to govern routine work, but if the pupil is found to 
be falling off in his studies, neglecting his duties or exerting 
an unwholesome influence, prompt steps are taken for his 
amendment. If a pupil does not show some disposition to con- 
form to high standards he can hardly be considered good ma- 
terial for a teacher; and, if he is found unresponsive to patient 
endeavors to bring him into the proper attitude to his duties, 
he is requested to resign his place in the school. Every effort 
is made to lead the students to choose the right, and the results 
for the past year have been wholly satisfactory. 

In the spirit of the institution is found the discipline of the 
school. 

dormitories; ano &ooms 

The school is equipped with dormitory space for two hun- 
dred and twenty-four students. Each dormitory room is pro- 
vided with two single iron beds, with springs, mattresses and 
pillows, two chairs, a table, washstand, bureau and wardrobe — 
all the necessary furniture for comfortable living. 

There is a central heating and lighting plant that provides 
steam heal and electric lights for all the buildings. A modern 
system of ventilation is installed. The plumbing, draining and 
all those things necessary for good sanitary conditions are of 
the best type procurable. The school gets its water from the 
town of Greenville. The town owns ita own waterworks and 
has the water examined frequently, thus insuring its purity. 
In short, the home life of each student is made as comfortable 
as can be, and every possible precaution for health is taken. 



12 East Carolina Teachers' Training School. 

During the past year the general health of the student body 
has been entirely satisfactory. 

Culinary department 

The school dining room is perhaps the prettiest hall in the 
institution. The equipment in the kitchen is modern in every 
sense. For the preservation of meats, vegetables and other 
food-stuffs, the school has established a refrigerating plant of 
the best type. A graduate of Drexel Institute has charge of 
the Culinary Department — the object of the school being to 
provide for its student body the most wholesome food and to 
see that this food is prepared in the best way possible. 

jfflebtcal attention 

The school physician pays daily visits to the institution. A 
resident nurse is in charge of the infirmary. This building is 
equipped with all the necessary furniture. Heating, lighting, 
plumbing and ventilation modern. 

&bministration iSuilbing 

In the Administration Building are to be found the school 
offices, Library, Chemical Laboratory, ten recitation rooms, 
four music rooms, and the Assembly Hall. Each room is well 
equipped and ventilated. The Assembly Hall has a seating ca- 
pacity of eight hundred. Here the devotional exercises are 
held daily. 

launbrp 

The laundry is equipped with all the necessary machinery 
for efficient laundry work. The equipment here, as in the 
other buildings, is of the best possible type. 

Athletics 

The students are provided with a ball ground and four tennis 
courts. They are encouraged to take a sufficient amount of 
outdoor exercise to insure good health. For this purpose, walks 
will be laid off in the park and each student is requested to 
spend at least one hour each day in the open air. 



East Carolina Teachers' Training School. 13 

g>tubents' Outfit 

Each student is expected to bring for his own use the follow- 
ing articles : Two pairs of sheets, one pair blankets, two white 
counterpanes, two pillow cases, six towels, six table napkins, a 
spoon and a glass. 

Only single beds are used. 

All articles to be sent to the Laundry should be plainly 
marked with indelible ink. 

<£rgam?aticmg 

The attitude of the school toward organizations is to encour- 
age those that are intended to preserve health, develop charac- 
ter and the spirit of democracy. 

Athletic Association 

Officers.— J. L. Rawles, Manager; E. D. Dodd, Captain. 

The young men organized a baseball club and played sev- 
eral games during the year, making for the school a very satis- 
factory record. 

3Tarbis iflemorial Uiterarp g>ocietP 

Officers.— S. F. Linton, President; L. A. Harper, Secretary- 
Treasurer. 

The Jarvia Memorial Literary Society was organized by the 
young men of the school to encourage public speaking and de- 
bate. Its work for the past year has been most satisfactory. 

goung Somen's Christian Association 
Officers.— Pattie S. Dowell, President; Vada Highsmith; 

Vice-President; Virginia Dail, Secretary; Louise Fleming, 
Treasurer. 

The young women of the school organized themselves into a 
Young Women's Christian Association and held devotional ex- 
ercises daily. This association has done a greal work in fos- 
tering the religious spirit of the school.

GTeacfjer*' l&egtsitrp 

To help county superintendents and school trustees who de- 
sire to secure good teachers and to help those students who com- 
plete the course, to secure desirable positions, the school will 
recommend deserving young men and women for positions. 

It is the purpose of the school in this matter to recommend 
only those students who have the scholarship and personality 
necessary to meet the demands of the given position.

JUgutrements for gfomtstfton 
preparatory Course 

There are many students in North Carolina who do not have 
access to a good high school, but who desire to become teachers. 
Such students will be admitted to the Preparatory Course, pro- 
vided, they have successfully completed the first year's work 
of the high school, or its equivalent. 

Admission to this course is either by certificate or by exam- 
ination. 

professional Course 

This course is open only to those students who have success- 
fully completed work equivalent to that prescribed by an ac- 
credited high school. Admission to this course is either by 
certificate or by examination. 

(Bnt Bear Course for Ceacfters of &ural Schools 

Realizing that many teachers desire to make a more thor- 
ough study of the subjects of the public school branches of 
North Carolina, the school offers a one year's course open to 
those who hold a first or second grade certificate. To this 
course only a limited number of students will be admitted, and 
only those who hold a first or second grade certificate from a 
county superintendent. 

For admission to either of the above courses the student 
must, be sixteen years of age.

department of Sngtruftton 
Cngltsh 

The work of the English Department is intended to give the 
student a thorough grounding in the fundamental principle? 
of our language, and to acquaint him with the principles of 
English Grammar and Rhetoric — to develop a fondness for 
good literature. 

The work of the first and second years is intended as a basis 
upon which the two years of professional training shall rest. 
In the Junior and Senior years the work is given with the fol- 
lowing ends in view : 

To cultivate the love of general literature for its own sake;, 
to give the pupil-teachers the right attitude toward English 
teaching; to dignify and magnify the office of English in the 
common schools, and to show that teachers can bring life and 
interest to English speaking children in the study of their 
mother tongue.

Science 

It is the one purpose of our science courses to train for in- 
telligent living and intelligent service. 

This involves a thorough knowledge of the fundamental 
principles of our several subjects of study, a knowledge of the 
facts which make these principles clear, and a knowledge of 
the science facts necessary for daily life. 

Inasmuch as the goal of instruction is not reached until the 
individual has acquired the power to use the knowledge he 
has gained, power to work independently of the teacher, power 
to think accurately and clearly, these features are stressed and 
opportunity is constantly offered to apply the knowledge 
gained to the practical and everyday affairs of life. 

Our science courses lead up to, prepare for and culminate 
in the subjects most closely related to the lives of the people 
of North Carolina — 

(a) Geography — A study of the earth in its relations to life, 
its control over life and the way life responds to the various 
geographic factors ; and the way man adjusts himself to and 
utilizes the factors of his environment best to meet his needs. 

(b) Physiology and Hygiene — A study of the human 
mechanism to the end that it may receive more intelligent care 
and attention and result in healthier, happier and more ef- 
ficient living. 

(c) Agriculture — To assist us in solving the problem — "Who 
can raise the best plant or animal?" and bring to the problem 
and its solution, common sense, good judgment, and a knowl- 
edge of the principles which underlie efficient agriculture 
— the greatest and most important occupation of man — so as 
to dignify it and bring it up to the rightful place it should 
bold boI only in the minds of those who engage in this occupa- 
tion, but in the minds of all others. 

( <1 ) Home Economies — How to improve the conditions in 
and about our home; to discover those factors that make for a 
more sanitary and a more hygienic mode of living, and that in- 
fluence the physical, mental, moral and aesthetic nature of man.

This involves the questions of sanitation, food and its proper 
preparation, home decoration and dress. 

$ebagogp 

Pedagogy is an essential department of a Teachers' Train- 
ing School. The instruction in this department deals with the 
fundamental principles of education; the relation of the dif- 
ferent branches of knowledge to one another and to the mind, 
and the method by which the human powers may be trained, 
and the mind stored with knowledge. It deals with the theory 
and the practice of teaching. 

The Department of Pedagogy in this school devotes some 
time to a study of the fundamental laws of mind that the 
students may utilize their knoAvledge of these mental activities 
in their own study. This includes within its scope a study of 
Child Development and How to Teach Children to Study. 

The Teaching Process is emphasized with the aim of en- 
abling the students to understand and make a practical applica- 
tion of the principles involved in good teaching and the meth- 
ods employed to realize the goal in the process of education. 

IJrimarp ffienjobs 
This course will cover the work of the first three grades and 
will consist of lectures, discussions and observations of work 
done with a class of young children. The aim of the course is 
to get a correct idea of the methods which have been most suc- 
cessful in teaching reading, language, number work. etc. m the 

lower grades. 

sfecftool Management 

It is the purpose of this course to discuss the various prob- 
lems confronting the teacher in the organization, the conduct. 
and the management of the school. It proposes in addition *o 
the treatment of methods and their skillful use, to emphasize 
the practical and vital topics in school management in such 
manner that it may aid the teachers to fill that wider function 
of training pupils for the duties, responsibilities and obligations

of life. It is made as practical as possible in order to meet the 
conditions and needs of the schools of to-day. 

Bratotng 

The courses in drawing are planned to give all students who 
wish to teach Primary and Grammar grades a practical knowl- 
edge of drawing. 

The purpose is to train the mind, the eye and the hand to 
work together — to cultivate habits of thought and observation 
and to create an appreciation of the beautiful. 

The courses are adapted to the needs of the student-teacher 
both as a learner of the principles of drawing and as a pros- 
pective teacher of the subject. 

Jlusrtc 

Three courses in music are offered. 

public g>cfjool JWustc 

The object of this course is to prepare teachers to conduct 
the singing in their schools, and to instruct them in the funda- 
mental principles of music. Public school music as presented 
to-day recognizes the fact that its great value lies in singing 
with interest and expression. The foundation of musical 
knowledge is laid through the acquisition of a repertoire of 
beautiful songs. Attention is given to technique and to ex- 
pression ; the elements of music being studied through the me- 
dium of songs. 

Instrumental f-Nusic 
Instrumental instruction on the piano is offered. The ob- 
ject of this course is thoroughly to ground the student in the 
fundamental principles of instrumental music.

Spring anb Summer Counsel for Ceacfjers; 

It is the aim of this school to render every service it can to 
advance the best interest of public education in the State. 
Realizing that many teachers engaged in the work wish to 
study after their schools close that they may better equip them- 
selves for their profession; also realizing that the schools of 
the counties do not close at the same time, the Training 
School, to meel these conditions for the past year offered two 
courses of instruction. The results of this year's work were so 
satisfactory thai the Training School course for teachers has 
become a permanent part of the school's work. 



40 East Carolina Teachers' Training School. 

Courses of g>tuop 

For the past year the following courses were offered: 

Course A — March 15th to July 30th. 

English — Grammar, Composition and Literature; Mathemat- 
ics — Arithmetic; Pedagogy — Hamilton's The Recitation; His- 
tory — United States and North Carolina; Civil Government, 
Geography, School Management, Lectures on School Organiza- 
tion and Management. 

Course B— May 24th to July 30th. 

Course B same as course A for the first term. Those who 
entered in May were allowed to select twenty-five hours of 
work from those subjects beginning at that time in either 
Course A or Course B. The object of this arrangement was 
to enable the teacher to study those subjects he needed most. 
The aim of these courses was better to equip the teacher for 
his work ; to enable him thoroughly to master the contents of 
the texts studied and to acquire that skill necessary to impart 
that knowledge to his classes. 

The text-books studied were those taught in the public 
schools. 

Instrumental music was offered to those who desired to take 
that study. 

The work in these courses was of such a nature that those 
students who continued through to the end of the term and 
took the examinations were given credit for the work done, 
provided they made satisfactory grades. 

It is the aim of the school to offer a course next year that 
will be a continuation of the work done during the past spring 
and summer, so that those teachers who have attended either 
the spring or the summer course this year, may continue their 
Btudies if they desire.

The East Carolina Teachers' Training- School was estab- 
lished by Act of the General Assembly of 1907. This Act pro- 
vided "'that said school shall be located by the State Board of 
Education at such a point in eastern North Carolina as they may 
deem proper, and shall be located in or near that town offer- 
ing the largest financial aid, having due regard to desirability 
and suitability for the location of said school." The State 
Board of Education selected Greenville, and here on a tract of 
forty-seven acres, six beautiful buildings have been erected. 
These buildings are modern in every particular — heating, light- 
ing, ventilation and sanitation. Each room in the dormitories 
has a closet and is furnished with two single iron bedsteads 
with good springs, the best grade of felt mattresses, pillows, 
bureau, washstand. table and chairs — all the furniture neces- 
sary for comfortable living. 

The management of the school is vested in a Board of 
Trustees, consisting of nine members appointed by the State 
Board of Education, with the State Superintendent of Public 
Instruction as chairman, ex officio. "Two members of the said 
board shall be selected from the First Congressional District, 
two from the Second, two from the Third, two from the 
Fourth, and one from the Sixth."* 

*Aet of the General Assembly. 1907.

The Act establishing the institution gives its purpose in the 
following words: "The object in establishing and maintain- 
ing said school shall be to give to young white men and wo- 
men such education and training as shall fit and qualify them 
for teaching in the public schools of North Carolina. * * * 
The course of study of said school shall lay special emphasis 
on the subjects taught in the public schools of the State, and 
on the art and science of teaching." This is to be a Normal 
School. But realizing that normal work can not be effective 
until the foundation is well made, this school will give to its 
students a good rudimentary education as well as pedagogical 
training. 

&egutrements; for gfomueteton 

For 1909- 19 10, any student who wishes to become a teacher 
and has successfully completed the first year's work of the 
high school course, as prescribed by the State Superintendent 
of Public Instruction, may be admitted.* If a student has 
access to a good high school, we advise him to remain in the 
local school until he completes the course, then come to this 
school for his professional training. Students more advanced 
than the first-year high school work will be given credit for the 
work they have done.
